20th Century Dog ‘Bone’ (Vivid Music event)
Jazzy Broken Beat Funk! Deep grooves & infectious melodies.
A triumph of inventive rhythmic exploration. – J. McBeath The Australian
A very 21st-century take on groove... irresistible while also being brilliantly unpredictable. Mighty! – - J. Shand, Music & Other Spheres
Booty-shaking but mind-bending at the same time. ‘Bone’ conjure’s the same skull-grinning space-griots as Herbie Hancock’s Mwandishi band. – J Hardaker Words About Music
Rhythmic and melodic components are layered among the group delivering odd-metered grooves in an improvisatory, conversational style, appealing equally to the body and the mind and capturing a folk-like, singable essence.
